Emerging policy on decarbonising the economy needs regional input, according to the Labour Party. The Guardian reports a speech (as yet unpublished) by shadow business secretary Rebecca Long-Bailey, who has already committed the party to a revamped Green “new deal” strongly reminiscent of Green party policy.
She told a meeting in London that, “Trade unionists and industry leaders will come together with academics, engineers and public institutions to build detailed regional plans setting out the challenges and opportunities ahead.”
This “will involve a national call for evidence and a series of regional events to build ‘a detailed action plan’ to maximise the benefits of moving to a zero-carbon future.”
Details of any such events in our region when we have them.
